Gallows - Grey Britain: THE BANNED ARTWORK!

Here for you to enjoy are a few pictures of the original artwork commissioned for Gallows - Grey Britain. The scenes depicted were deemed so damned extreme that the record label Warner Bros wouldn't allow Frank Carter & Co to use them, which led to the creation of the alternative artwork we're all now familiar with.

I had been trawling the internet for even a glimpse of these after losing out on getting the expanded limitied edition of Grey Britain, so here you are fucking enjoy! These came courtesy of Stuart.

Policeman appears as swine & gets a handjob. There's also rape going on? Some religious woman impaling herself and er.. servicing another woman with Vultures presiding over the scene that takes place on a bed of intestines it looks like.

The inverted cross ever symbolic of the anti-religion. The glorious full body impaling of a female by the Union Jack & suited pigs terrorize a young woman.

The scripture in the background spells out 'EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART', which obviously is pretty apt.

  4. get a fucking life, jesus. the artwork is brilliant. it might not be "real gore", but its a metaphor for whats happeneing to our country. and looking at the Tomb Of The Mutilated cover by Cannibal Corpse, sorta loses all vulgarity and horror, well when i looked at it.

    Mate how is this in anyway 'screamo gayness'? Gallows are basically hradcore for the new generation. death metal is king of gore yes, but dont get gallows confused with screamo. cause that is gay.

  9. This release has nothing to do with 'screamo' or death metal. Stop mentioning either, you musically illiterate twats.

  10. I always think it odd that the inverted cross is a sign of anti-religion. The Pope's thone has inverted crosses on it, symbolising the crucifixtion, up-side down, of St Peter.
    I cannot understand why the cover was banned. There is too much censorship in the UK.
